The Gardens after Irene
After our walk this morning and a nice big Sunday breakfast and electricity. The electric went off for about 8 hours. We are very lucky that we only got about 6" of rain (last estimate I checked) and the winds were not all that bad. The wind did blow pretty good until about 6 PM this evening.
The home garden looks really good!
Around 4:30 PM I was bored and decided to go to the plots.
The one Three Sisters planting. The corn & beans knocked over and the Sweet Dumpling support as well. I picked all the Sweet Dumplings before the storm.
Tomato Alley....not looking all that bad, just leaning a little. The plants are still alive!
The Purple Pole Bean Tepee, laying down on the job. I don't think the plants were up-rooted. So I will see what I can do with it tomorrow.
The other Three Sisters planting. The corn and beans were blown over also.
A couple of the Bell Pepper plants were blown over. But I don't think that they are broken.
The hot & spice peppers looked fine. The leeks were leaning a bit.
Newly planted broccoli & cauliflower look fine.
The Brussels Sprouts leaning a bit too.
One of the gardeners there fence blew down
The port o potty also blew over
Some corn blowing in the wind
I thought this picture really captured the weather as I was leaving.
All in all....not that bad. Tomorrow afternoon I will get over there and start cleaning up!
